How Do I Add Thumbnails to Canva?

Adding thumbnails to your Canva project can be a great way to add an extra layer of professionalism to your work. Thumbnails are small images that represent your project, often used for preview purposes in social media and other applications. With Canva, the process of adding thumbnails is simple and straightforward.

To start, open the creation you would like to add a thumbnail to. From here, you will find the “More” button in the upper-right corner; click this. A drop-down menu will appear – select “Downloads” from here.

You will then be directed to a new page with various download options – select “Download as image” from this list. Your creation will then be downloaded as an image file onto your computer.

Once the file is downloaded, go back into Canva and select “More” again. This time, select “Thumbnails” from the drop-down menu. You will be directed to a page with various thumbnails sizes available for you to choose from – select whichever size you would like for your project.

The next step is uploading your image file into Canva’s thumbnail section. To do this, click “Uploads” at the top of the page and then drag and drop your image file into the designated area or click “Choose a file” instead. Once uploaded, you can adjust its size by dragging on its four sides.

And there you have it! Your new thumbnail should now be visible in Canva’s thumbnail section and ready for use in projects.

Adding thumbnails to Canva projects can make them look more professional and attractive when shared online or sent out as part of presentations or other marketing materials. With only a few steps needed in order to add them, everyone should consider taking advantage of this feature when creating their designs.
